I'm looking for the filename being assigned to a pc during a pxe boot.

I'm setting up SCCM 2007 on a Srv2003-sp2-R2 server. WDS, MDT2008 and all the SCCM roles are on the SCCM server, DHCP is on a different server.
When I try to pxe boot a pc, dhcp assigns an ip address, the pxe filter from MDT adds the MAC address to SCCM, but the pc shows PXE-T01:File not found / PXE-E3B:TFTP Error - File not found.
Last week I found a log file somewhere in SCCM where you could see the name of the file being issued to the PC, now I can't find the right log file to see what's going on. Can anyone help?

What are your DHCP scope options set to (for that network segment/VLAN)?

066 Boot Server Host Name should be 'sccmserver.domain.com'
067 Bootfile Name should be 'SMSBoot\x86\wdsnbp.com'

You should also see a '\\sccmserver\REMINST\' file share.

One other note, I think that you may need to add an x64 boot image for PXE to work will some machines.  I think the PXE client will request a boot image for it's processor arch (x86 or x64).  In our case the Intel Core 2 machines wanted an x64 boot image.
